republican minority since president obama came in. if you go back to 2009, january, we are in the midst of a national economic crisis, on the verge of depression. the president was entitled to think he would get some cooperation from the leaders. that is the way our system works. he got no cooperation. the difference between the leaders that i grew up with, such as howard baker of tennessee and mitch mcconnell of kentucky today is like the grand canyon. there is simply no comparison. host: was there a particular event that signals the end of what you call the last great senate? guest: there were stages. what i call the great senate of the 1960's and 1970's ended when president reagan was elected. he came in with a lot of republican neophytes and sloughed out a lot of the great senators. -- knocked out a lot of the great senators. the story was not done yet. in the 1980's, the senate came out and functions pretty much like the senate did. in the 1990's, newt gingrich and his senate counterparts took over the congress in 1994. they started straight down. i think the senate has been in a 2

president obama is going to end up asking the republicans to capitulate, give them no easy path to yes. will ask them really to hugh il-- humiliate themselves to agree to tax rate increases that they have said no to again and again. nonetheless i still probably win that just because the landscape really does favor him. what it will hurt is a long-term effort to really solve our fundamental problems. raising taxes on the rich closes the deficit by a little, but not very much. we need a big solution. and if we go to a war over this, i'm afraid that will make the bigger deal which we need very hard to get down the road. >> woodruff: is that what you see happening? >>. >> well, i share some of david's concerns. and i do think that we just need to prepare ourselves on the way to the fiscal cliff. we're going to be on a fiscal roller coaster. and it's going to look absolutely terrible and dire before it gets solved if it gets solved. but there is-- there are going to be numerous moments where it looks like as if they can't bridge the gap. it is clear that the president despite his words of c

negotiating positions which are understandable. you have obama 250, you have republicans at least admitting there needs to be new revenue and want to go through the loopholes first and see where they can get revenue there. that's obviously not going to be enough. some point they're going to have to give on it. it may be ultimately that we have a situation where they -- the tax cut dozen expire. we go off the cliff for 24 hours but that offers the republicans an opportunity to come back and vote for a tax cut for those under 250 rather than increase through extension. that's an outcome that's possible. >> i'm curious about the notion the republicans can save face if we go over the fiscal cliff although lately people have been calling it the fiscal curb, it's unclear how much of a steep drop it is in the first 24 hours. can republicans, if the president lets the bush tax cuts expire can the republicans come back to the table and pass a tax cut, does that work in their favor? do american people say the republicans got owned and have to come to the table and deal with whatever the pre
